Nigeria international: Hopefully I can be involved again next season at Arsenal


Arsenal winger Alex Iwobi will be hoping to play more regular football at the club next season.

The youngster impressed in Arsene Wenger's squad this season as he grabbed his first goal in an Arsenal jersey against Everton.

But he says he will need to score more goals and provide more assists if he is to convince his manager.

"I'm going to rest for a bit, because it's been non-stop since about January," Iwobi told the club's official website.

"Then I'm going to prepare for the next season. Hopefully I can be involved again next season. I'm not sure if I'm going to go on holiday yet.

"Then it will be pre-season, which is a lot of running. I'm actually dreading that, the first few weeks are such hard work. I always make sure I keep fit during the summer, because if I don't, the first few days at pre-season kills me!

"I think because of the position I play I need to get more goals and assists.

"I haven't done that for a while, a few games, so I need to add that to my game next season. I'm aware I haven't got an assist or a goal for a few games, so I need to get something.

"I know a lot of hard work is going to be required to kick on again next season. I've been putting my head down, getting on with it and putting in the work."
